Hello! Today we are very happy to have a feature and with a mini-interview Mary Jane Mitchell and he beautiful work.
We were lucky to had Mary Jane as part of the guest designers that collaborated with Believe Creative Studio for the collection presented at Indigo-Paris back in February. We loved working with her and the customers loved her textured hand-drawn beautiful and clasical style.
MaryJane Mitchell has been designing textiles and products for the home and fashion industry in the United States and Europe for over 20 years. She enjoys designing for the children’s industry because she loves coming up with designs that make people smile and that bring a bit of happiness to the world. Her style is both whimsical and colorful and besides the children’s market, her style lends itself to the adult market, as well. She licensed her designs in the Tabletop industry for over 12 years and her
dinnerware has been featured in most major retail stores.
MaryJane graduated from FIDM in Los Angeles with a degree in fashion and then, when she found she could not find the right textiles while working in the children’s bedding industry, she went back to school at night for a Textile Program at Otis Parsons.
She has been an avid runner for over 25 years and finds her greatest inspiration and brain storming come from running the trails behind her house by herself or with her dog, Maizie. She is known for her abundance of energy, which she is proud to say she inherited from her mother.
